LHiNC Racial Equity Event: Apartheid in Minneapolis
April 14 & 21, 7:00 p.m., Virtual, Free
Register here – Registration closes at 5pm on April 21.
LHiNC invites you to participate in Apartheid in Minneapolis, a free, two-part presentation and discussion with Sara Spafford-Freeman on April 14 and 21. Apartheid in Minneapolis examines racial disparities in five systems: housing, wealth, health, public schools, and public safety. The presentation isn’t a history of Minneapolis — it is an unflinching look at significant, present-day racial disparities in our city, and the policies and choices maintaining them.
Sara Spafford-Freeman is a community organizer and public schools advocate, as well as the parent of 3 MPS students. She worked on gathering data for more than a year and began presenting Apartheid in Minneapolis to groups during the summer of 2020. It is dedicated with love to the Polar Nation.
